Speech Therapy (ST) services are invaluable for stroke, Parkinson’s and other physically debilitative disease patients. Our Speech Therapists integrate the latest technology and rehabilitative plans in the treatment of speech and swallowing disorders.

AT Home Care is one of a select few home health care agencies that is certified to use the neuromuscular electronic stimulation (NMES). Using VitalStim's state of the art equipment, NMES therapy is used to treat select homebound patients with Dysphagia (swallowing difficulties). This is an innovative treatment that has helped many patients retrain muscles and regain use of their swallowing function.

Dysphagia Statistics

  • More than 15 million Americans have moderate to severe difficulty swallowing
  • More than 50 percent of stroke patients, and 60 percent of head/neck radiation (i.e. throat cancer) patients will eventually develop dysphagia.
  • Some estimates indicate 90 percent of Parkinson's and ALS patients suffer from dysphagia.
